“I had always heard that field work or track work or other max effort sprints should always come before heavy lifting. But a lot of the time here sprint DWODs are programmed for after”
Bulldozer2020 (aka Chris) asks:
“How bout a recipe section on the site where maybe everyone can share some power meal ideas? And are there going to be any new T shirts being made with the ‘Power Athlete’ skull and barbells logo on it? That would be pretty rad. Itchin to get some new gear.”
Kevin Daley asks:
Can you guys discuss sleep? I’ve seen the topic on the CFFB board intermittently and think it was partially covered in a TTMJ article. The more sleep the better to an extent but could you provide any input, observations or personal experience with too much/too little/screwed up sleep schedules? Mine is a mess so I get what I can when I can.
A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
